Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
yes, it did , came out quite well
Were the instructions easy to follow?
yes they were very easy to follow. when it comes to the waist band and ties you need to pay attention as you may have ties all over the place. but if you have made wrap garments before you should be aware of the importance of directions and so on. otherwise they were fine .. I didnt get a little confused re the buttons.. there they needed to go, but I put it on my custome and customised the locations..
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
i like the flounce at the fron and the long ties.
no dislikes
Fabric Used:
100% cotton african Wax Print (ANKARA)
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Just the location of the buttons.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
yes, I Made two in one night for mother dearest. I wouldnt say it took an hr each. more like 2.5 each. There is a lot of pressing and narrow hemming to be done..
